Born in 1976 in the ex-Soviet Block. Arrived in the Atlantic Coast of France a bit later.
At the age of 18, I've bought my first camera. Result : spoiled shots, failed pics... But improving everyday.
At the age of 30, I'm starting a new job as primary school teacher, my pupils were my first audience.
At the age of 40, the first exhibitions I've participated in gave me the courage to go further. My dream takes shape...
My sources of inspiration are multifarious : from Helmut Newton to Henri Cartier-Bresson, from the glamour of Ellen von Unwerth to the depth of Raymond Depardon, from portraits by Jean-Marie Périer to ecology with Yann Arthus-Bertrand. From Victoria Siemer to Satoki Nagata. De film camera to digital, from mirror to mirrorless...
I like to find perfect lines to create visual effects ultra-graphic.
I've participated many times in the Photo Contest of the PHOTO magazine. In year 2019, one of my picture (Round straw bales) has been among the finalists.
In 2019, I've been selected to participate in the International Contemporary Art Fair ART3F in Nantes.
In 2020, I'm exposed at the gallery "L'arête" in La Gacilly.
And it still goes on... What an adventure !
